And to top it off, ALL proceeds from your stay will be used to help us care for the rescued animals at Rooterville Animal Sanctuary.
Are you ready for an amazing time in the country in a gorgeous 1800's style handmade covered wagon? Seriously! Our new Plainscraft Covered Wagons offer guests the ultimate country retreat here at our beautiful new location in Melrose, FL. Choose "Hog Heaven" for couples with one king bed or bring the kids and choose "The Herd" with a King bed and twin bunk beds.
You're going to love waking up to cows mooing for their breakfast, turkey's gobbling and pigs snuffling around looking for tasty treats that fell from the overhead trees. Our wagons overlook the pond with a waterfall and fountain for the perfect tranquil touch both day and night. It's a perfect get away! The wagons feel very secluded in their private area with woods as a backdrop.
Enjoy all the comforts of home in your luxury wagon: a hot shower, private restroom, mini-fridge, coffee pot microwave and toaster. Enjoy the view from your porch overlooking the beautiful, peaceful sanctuary with all of its wildlife along with the friendly assortment of farm animals. Sit around the campfire and sing songs or just be. That's the gift we want to share with you, the opportunity to get away from the business of life, come to the country and just be. Leave your worries and cares at the gate and come into the most peaceful, serene place on the planet. Except at feeding times, of course!
Come on out to the sanctuary grounds and spend time interacting with our precious farm animals. You're welcome to bring treats for them, any kind of fruit or veggie you'd eat is just fine. Baby carrots are a fave. Watch or participate in the daily chores, it's your choice. However involved you want to be, you'll be welcome by our friendly staff and our wonderful animals. We can't wait to see y'all!
This is a perfect romantic getaway gift for your loved one!
Melrose is close to Goldhead State Park, Keystone Heights, Lake Sante fe, Gainesville, Jacksonville and St Augustine. There is plenty to do with lakes all around and a bike trail just down the road. Horses are welcome for an extra charge.
No pets please, no exceptions, sorry about that!
